Sylvania Model 1201 Bakelite Radio
Dark green radios are so unusual that I just had to have this one,
despite the horror that somebody inflicted on its knobs. The cabinet
is painted Bakelite and the knobs are plastic. Somebody (let's be
charitable and assume it was a child) decided to "improve" the dials
by slopping red paint over their centers. Maybe someday when I have
lots of time, I'll try restoring the plastic knobs. Meanwhile, at least I can
say that I own a dark green radio, even if it does spend most of its time
out of sight.
The Sylvania logo on the grill is made of pot metal, painted the same
color as the cabinet.
I own only one other dark green set, a Sparton
325T clock radio.
